Java Chain Links Up with Jimmy John’s Founder’s Holding Company

A small drive-thru coffee chain has new energy and growth plans after securing a majority investment from Drink House Holdings.

Seven Brew Drive-Thru Coffee currently operates eight stores in Arkansas and one in Missouri. Now, with Drink House Holdings in tow, the chain announced its intent to launch a franchising program in new and existing markets. Drink House Holdings is led by Jamie B. Coulter (founder of Lone Star Steakhouse) and Jimmy John Liautaud (founder and former chairman of Jimmy John’s).

“We believe the drive-thru category is ripe for reinvention and rapid growth, and we’re well-positioned to disrupt and lead,” said Liautaud in a press release.

Evan Grisham, president and director of franchising for Seven Brew, said the chain has set “ambitious growth and expansion goals … and Drink House Holdings’ expertise will be invaluable in achieving those goals.”
